Find a toilet quickly and easily with this new app 37

If you’ve ever been looking for a public toilet but can’t find one whether it’s at the local shopping centre, or in Times Square, then this nifty new app will help you.

It’s called Flush Toilet Finder and it was specifically created to tell users where the closest toilet is, using a database of over 100,000 worldwide. All you need to have is a smart phone, either Android or Apple, to use the app.

The man who created the app, Jake Ruston, told the Daily Mail that the app will be useful for those with medical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s, plus those with a disability or children.

So how do you use it? In the app, you can search by location and select a bathroom. You will then be directed to it and told whether it is vacant or has disabled access.

You can also find out if the toilet you want to use has a fee (overseas) or needs a key.

Creator Jake knows how difficult it can be to locate toilets, especially whilst overseas and there are language barriers and unfamiliarity with the area.

The app is now available for free from iOS and Android app stores.

See how it works in this video below:

    • well that decided me..if she has anything to do with it..I am not touching it..I will do what I always do and ask

    • Libbi I feel your pain.. I just had to post the comment to prove to myself that I was capable of showing thanks where due despite how I may otherwise feel. So funny. I doubt she has anything to do with the app so go ahead and use it. Very comprehensive. Bronwyn was the Minister for Aging or whatever and pushed for the data to be brought together in response to requests.

  2. Now that is an app we oldies can appreciate lol. Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face Libby.

    • I only use my phone to ring and hang up, I don’t need the app, I have a mouth and I have managed so far to ask without problems. I use my laptop and home computer and ipad to access the internet

  3. Wow Sue! You nearly got me going too! Well thank heavens, now I will download that “life saving” App in peese! Lol

  4. What’s wrong with simply asking someone?

    • Many times, Jane and have a smattering of several other languages and no trouble asking the way to a loo; they’re usually well signposted too

  5. Must say I have to look twice now ! Get a bit nervous that I am in the wrong toilet. About 8years ago my sister and I were waiting for our plane to Tasmania to see our eldest sister. Me as always needs the toilet! Back in a minute i said! Enter and think gosh the toilets have all got bidets.. Come out and there was a man standing at the BIDET. he said one of us is wrong . I had only ever seen the old metal urinals before. Very embarrassed !
